Amy Helm, Didn't It Rain, feature CD, 7/24
We're pretty impressed with the new Amy Helm CD 'Didn't it Rain', and look forward to playing it for you on Friday 7/24 at 12 noon on KSUT. This solo project is also the result of the final recording sessions of her father Levon Helm, who acted as the project’s executive producer as well as adding his unmistakable drumming on three tracks.
Accompanying Helm on Didn’t It Rain is an impressive roster of players and singers including former Ollabelle bandmate Byron Isaacs, who produced the album, co-wrote several songs with Helm, and is featured as one-third of Helm’s current live trio the Handsome Strangers, playing bass alongside guitarist Daniel Littleton and drummer David Berger. Also contributing their talents are Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne; guitarists Larry Campbell, Chris Masterson and Jim Weider; keyboardists Marco Benevento, John Medeski and Brian Mitchell; and guest backup vocalists Carolyn Leonhart, Elizabeth Mitchell, Catherine Russell and Teresa Williams.
